Can I Sue for Personal Injury Construction Accidents?

Your employer has a duty to keep you safe on your job site. If you suffered an injury on a construction site, there is a good chance negligence was involved, and you may be able to sue the negligent party.

Depending on the type of construction accident, you may have a claim against the owner or contractor if you can prove they were negligent in keeping you safe on the construction site. Several different sections of New York State Labor Laws address construction worker safety, including:

  • Section 200 requires contractors and owners to protect workers and provide safe workplaces.
  • Section 240, also called the “scaffold law,” protects the rights of workers who have been injured in a high fall or struck by a falling object.
  • Section 241 specifies what safety equipment and other safety measures must be provided at a work site.

If you were injured in a construction accident, contact the experienced NY construction accident lawyers at Goidel & Siegel to talk about your claim. We provide a free consultation to discuss your case and whether you can sue for injuries you sustained in a construction accident.

FAQs

While every situation is different, the contractor or site owner may be held liable for your injuries after a New York City construction accident. After all, it is their job to keep you safe on the job site. Various laws exist to protect construction workers, especially the New York Scaffolding Law.

Officially called Section 240 of New York State Labor Law, the Scaffolding Law requires owners and contractors to provide safety measures such as scaffolding, ladders, ropes, pulleys, hoists, and more, to protect workers from falling or being hit by a falling object.

If the contractor, site owner, or your employer had dangerous conditions on the construction site which led to your injuries, contact the experienced New York construction accident lawyers at Goidel & Siegel for a free consultation. We will discuss your accident anywhere you are comfortable, including Zoom, and talk about who may be liable for your injuries and whether we can recover compensation for your medical bills, missed wages, and more.

Your employer is responsible for keeping you safe on a New York construction site, so you may be able to sue them if they were negligent in protecting you. Every case is different, so contact the experienced NYC construction accident lawyers at Goidel & Siegel today for a free consultation to discuss your case.

New York’s Scaffolding Law says your employer must protect you from falling or being hit by falling objects. If your employer did not do that, you may be able to sue them for negligence. The trial lawyers at Goidel & Siegel are highly respected by defense counsel and insurance companies, so we may be able to help get you the maximum compensation for your injuries.

These are the steps you should take after being injured in a New York City construction accident:

  • Get medical attention. Even if your injuries seem minor, you should go see a doctor. Why? Some injuries do not show symptoms until hours or days after the injury occurred. Getting immediate medical attention also leaves a paper trail showing you were treated for injuries, which can help with workers’ compensation or filing a lawsuit later.
  • Notify your employer as soon as you can. In addition to the fact that your company or state may require it, reporting your accident accelerates the processing of your workers’ compensation claim, makes your claim appear more valid, and forces your employer to take steps to ensure nobody else suffers from the same type of accident.
  • Gather as much information about your accident and injuries as possible. Take photos of the accident scene, get the contact information of witnesses, and keep track of your medical records and bills.
  • Contact the experienced NYC construction accident lawyers at Goidel & Siegel. We offer free consultations to help you find out if you have a case and we may be able to get you compensation for your injuries. Click here or call 212-404-6783 now for more information.

The New York Scaffolding Law is section 240 of New York State Labor Law, which protects the rights of construction workers who are struck by a falling object or who suffer a fall. This law requires construction contractors and owners to provide scaffolding and other safety measures to protect workers. On top of scaffolding, other appropriate safety measures may include:

  • Ladders
  • Hoists
  • Hangers
  • Slings
  • Ropes
  • Pulleys
  • Stays

If you were injured in a New York City construction accident where safety measures were lacking, you may be able to sue the contractor or owner to get compensation for your injuries that resulted from their negligence in providing a safe workplace.

To discuss whether your NYC construction accident injuries were the result of your employer failing to follow the Scaffolding Law or another type of negligence, contact our experienced New York construction accident lawyers at Goidel & Siegel today. We will offer you a free consultation to discuss your case and whether we can help you receive compensation for your injuries.

  • Medical malpractice: In New York, you have 2 ½ years from the date the medical negligence occurred, the date your treatment ended, or the date your issue was discovered to file a claim.
  • Wrongful death: Parties claiming wrongful death must file within 2 years of the person’s death, with no exceptions.
